Anatomy for Sport Science
Run by School of Medical Sciences
10.000 Credits or 5.000 ECTS Credits
Organiser: Dr Jennifer Cooney
Overall aims and purpose
The aim of this module is to enable the student to describe the anatomy of the human body using correct anatomical terminology. Upon completion students should be able to relate this knowledge to sport science contexts and common sports injuries.
On completion of the module students are expected to be able to: 1. Describe and define the anatomical position and regions of the human body 2. Describe the anatomy of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. 3. Identify surface markings of key anatomical landmarks for client examination 4. Students will be able to recognise and explain the symptoms of common sports related disease presentations
B (Very Good; 65%): Comprehensive and accurate understanding of the content. C (Good; 55%): Indicating generally accurate understanding of the content.
D (Adequate; 45%): Accurate basic factual information with some errors. E (Poor; 35%): Not met the learning outcomes of the module.
A (Excellent; >74%): Very comprehensive and accurate understanding of the content with evidence of going beyond the core readings and explored the topic in depth.
Students will be able to describe the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, and explain their function
Students will be able to recognise and explain the symptoms of common sports related disease presentations
Students will be able to describe the anatomical position, describe where structures are, and name the different regions of the human body. They will be able to describe the structure and function of bones, muscles and ligaments
Students will be able to identify surface markings of key anatomical landmarks
Students will be able to describe the musculoskeletal system, and explain its function
The summative assessment for this module is a 100% MCQ exam assessing all learning outcomes. The exam will take place during the summer exam period - exact date tbc.
